The rooms have excellent view of the sea. The rooms open out out almost on to the sea and one can sit for hours watching the waves crashing down below. The service is excellent but I would recommend Leela Kovalam for its rooms with "a view". Food, especially the typical Kerala style sea food is simply marvelous.

The hotel has a huge property. We stayed in rooms that had two adjoining rooms per cottage. The rooms are spacious and extremely luxurious and had balconies that overlooked the lawns and swimming pool. The main swimming pool is a gorgeous infinity pool from which you can see the ocean. The hotel's private beach is its biggest perk since most... More

We planned for a week holiday in Kerala with a family, which included people of 60 plus age and also kid of 3 years. We did direct booking at the hotel, and the hospitality started from that point itself. The staff at reservation was well equipped with the knowledge on various policies related with the stay and package and ensured... More

The hotel is beautifully located. The rooms in the main building have a nice view overlooking the sea, the cottages below are even nicer - with a garden view though. The Club is a rip-off. The view from the Club rooms is wonderful, but the standard room (which is pretty expensive) is small, and the decor not to my taste.... More

A great place to go for a holiday, lovely rooms, beach & activities. The food is excellent and especially the Oriental is one of the best. It was a magnificent 4 days spent and very hospitable staff.

We stayed at The Leela during May. We have stayed a few times before so we knew what to expect. This time we stayed in the club area which has great views over the ocean. The rooms are a fair size with nice balcony’s and plush bathrooms. The pool area in the club is very quiet and relaxing with good... More
